I’ve been getting advertisements from the Wall Street Journal Pro Cybersecurity.
I find this whole situation very bizarre, as I only know them as a business-focused newspaper. It seems they are releasing not only Cybersecurity news, but also Cybersecurity training?
Our news, commentary and training is designed to give senior executives the non-technical news and analysis they need
Apparently their training is:
Designed to help executives ensure that their businesses respond to cyber-attacks in a decisive and coordinated way, these tabletop exercises will allow you to identify gaps in your response plans and navigate challenges arising from security compromises.
Training packs are available for the following scenarios:
- Leaking Documents
- Historic Attacks
- Denial of Service
I must admit, the website does have a very “premium” look and color to it.
But my question is; is it common for news outlets to offer cybersecurity training? Is there any benefit choosing WSJ over a normal cybersecurity firm? (Is this a late April fools joke?)
